Thank you for visiting my website!  Currently a senior data engineer for an Educational Technology company, for many years I served as an IT support professional.  I have personally supported hundreds of users on both Mac and PC platforms over my career.

Another part of my life is about quiltmaking, which I have been working on since 1998.  Over the years I have created over a dozen original quilts using a variety of techniques and methods.  I make mostly one-of-a-kind, original design, contemporary quilts and wall hangings.   One of my fusible web applique pieces was accepted into the International Quilt Festival in Houston, and was published in the Quilters Newsletter Magazine and made the evening news in 2014.  My pieces have also appeared in the Mt. Airy Art Garage Show No Longer Anonymous and other shows. Since 2021 I have reacquainted myself with English Paper Piecing and have been working on several pieces. You can see what’s going on with my quilt making here.

Originally from Brooklyn, New York, I spent my formative years in Paris and Senegal, West Africa. Philadelphia was my home for 35 years. A series of events culminating in the pandemic drove me to return to southern Vermont where I lived as a teenager. When I’m not working or making quilts, I spend lots of time walking and hiking with my dog, listening to jazz, cooking and eating, and working on keeping fit and healthy.
